Design Guidelines

Important: Any applicant, business owner, and land owner in any of the City’s historic districts should consult the appropriate guideline(s) prior to initiating a project or submitting an application to the HAPC. Each project will be judged, at least in part, against the guidelines contained here. Obviously, the HAPC cannot anticipate every application or situation within the context of these guidelines. Thus, the HAPC will judge each proposal on its own merit. The guidelines represent a common framework from which to begin evaluating individual applications.
